In partnership with screenwriter and author Karen Schaler, the creator of Christmas Camp®, The Phoenician is delighted to announce the exclusive return of Karen Schaler’s Christmas Camp for grown-ups for the 2019 holiday season!


Last December, guests flocked to The Phoenician, a AAA Five Diamond resort, to join in the festivities of Schaler’s inaugural Christmas Camp experience, inspired by her upcoming Christmas Camp Hallmark movie and recently released Christmas Camp novel. Guests enjoyed a luxurious, one-of-kind program featuring a variety of seasonally-themed activities, from holiday culinary and baking classes, to Christmas cocktail mixology and wine tastings, decorating and gift wrapping classes, arts and crafts and even signature spa treatments!


This year, Schaler’s Christmas Camp movie premieres as a Hallmark Original during the network’s beloved “Christmas in July” programming. To celebrate, The Phoenician is making its 2019 Christmas Camp Package available now for booking, while showcasing numerous new activities!




Calling all Christmas Campers!

Join us this December for the second annual Karen Schaler’s Christmas Camp at The Phoenician!  As we bring both Schaler’s Christmas Camp Hallmark movie and novel to life, you’ll enjoy a fun-filled experience featuring a memorable stay with AAA Five Diamond accommodations, and holiday-themed activities. With two different weekend options, guests can select which one they would like to attend (or both if they wish!).


“This Christmas Camp is for grown-ups,” Schaler says. “From culinary classes, Christmas crafts, charitable activities, cocktail mixology, signature spa treatments, holiday movie watching, daily author chats and so much more, it’s all about taking time before the hectic holiday season to relax, reset and rejuvenate, so you can embrace the true meaning and magic of Christmas.  I chose The Phoenician because I’ve personally experienced over the years how this legendary resort continues to focus on creating transformative and authentic experiences for guests.”
